That is the collective face of Detriot Tiger fans after lowly game 4. Their pitchers throw hard and can make the ball spin all crazy but ask them to make a routine throw to a base and they get more scared than being asked to kiss Jim Leyland with tongue and all. That has been the story of this series.
The St. Louis Cardinals are now one game from winning the World Series. FOX loves to remind the viewers at home the last time the Red Birds were up 3-1 in a WS they lost 4-3 to the Royals in 1985. If anyone's been watching every game of this series, a losing outcome just does not seem possible here.
The Tigers can't field, can't out hit, can't hold leads, and can't bring the series back to Detriot. The series ends on Friday night. What do they do in St. Louis when they win championships? I think they're a bit rusty. Do the Budweiser Clydsdales hump each other? LaRussa go streaking and not go to jail for it? Will Puljos really tells us he's found the Fountain of Youth?
This morning as my TV turned on in the morning (timer) to wake me up, I was still in a state of comfortable bliss. I wasn't sure if I heard that Jim Leyland smoked a whole CARTON of cigarettes during the 2 hour rain delay or I was having a horrible nightmare. You hear strange things when you're half awake. I checked with my sources and they said that was true. Jimmy, I'll send you some of Jacksonville's finest crack from the women working Phillips Highway. You need it more than those poor ladies.
Pee Wee, call that bodyless blue genie tell him this series is over.
